Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis J. Perry
Part of a set which has as its goal sharing the costumes and dress of people in countries throughout the world, this book looks at the rich mix of people in Mexico who make up different cultural groups, each with special traditions and costumes for men and for women. Various weaving patterns and their ancient meanings are examined. The text explores how many factors such as climate, local resources, religions, and traditions affect dress. In addition to everyday clothing, costumes for special occasions and ceremonies are included. A section is also devoted to special accessories such as silver jewelry, as well as colorful headbands, belts, and bags. The text is fully illustrated with color photographs and hand drawn art. Reviewer: Phyllis J. Perry
